Fear

Be it to be or not

Fear

One scared to swing-
From the highest of heights
Like a child scared of the dark
Without his nightlight.

I’ve been one scared of heights
That go up, up and away.
Scared of where it may lead
And things I may find.

Scared to find failure-
Or some kind of delight.
Scared of commitment
That’s too late to take flight.

To be one up so high-
To have trust in one.
Better not-
Better to trust I

For you can trust yourself and not get hurt-
Then to be crushed to pieces by others.

Being Me

It is hard to "believe" in yourself sometimes, especially when you see some people believing wholeheartedly in themselves when they really shouldn't. You've written a poem that will strike a chord with many I think x
